Ash – Year 1 & Year 2

What an exciting start to summer term in Ash class! We discovered an unusual looking egg, we created a nest to keep it safe and warm and sent all the information we had to the Natural History Museum. Here is what they wrote back, we have found a dragon egg!


Welcome to Ash Class where learning is made relevant and engaging in order to ignite young curious minds!


Our teachers are Miss Anderson (Tuesday-Friday) and Mrs Manning on a Monday. We are lucky to have Mrs Sullivan and Mrs Gilbey to support us with our learning. 


In Ash class we learn through topic work. This gives us the opportunity to learn through lots of different subjects, build on previous knowledge and develop a range of investigating and questioning skills to expand our understanding.

We have P.E lessons on Wednesday afternoon taught by our professional sports coaches (KAS).


We read in a group with the teacher every week and enjoy a class book together. Spellings are taught and tested on a Wednesday, and reinforced throughout the week through phonics, word and sentence work as well as handwriting. 


I look forward to the learning and memories we will make in Ash class throughout the academic year! smiley

Welcome to the Ash Class Page!


Teacher: Mrs N Prenderville

LSA: Mrs D Sullivan 


Mrs Sullivan and I are so thrilled to be in school once again and to welcome all the children back. Understandably there will be a period of adjustment, like there would be in any new school year, particularly this time around so we will settle the children in sensitively with regular opportunities for PHSE and well-being time.  


We will continue with a broad and balanced curriculum as children learn best when they are interested and have fun in the process! Reading will be an important part of the school day and there will be many different books for the children to be immersed in and enjoy. Adults in school will read with the children weekly and record in home/school records and reading records, although please accept our sincere delay with some of the home/school diaries being ready. Regular number work and fluency tasks will be focused on in Maths as well asfollowing the White Rose curriculum for a mixed year group.


DB Primary will be used for homework tasks each week due to restrictions with transferring items from home to school and vice versa. Homework will commence once it is has been satisfied the children are ready for this. 


P.E will be on a Wednesday afternoon and trainers will be needed in school for this day.


We look forward to a positive and fruitful year with lots of knowledge being gained and memories being made.

Welcome to Ash Class


Welcome to Ash Class where learning is fun and we all work as a team.


Our teachers are Mrs Wheatley (Mondays-Thursdays) and Mrs Manning on Fridays. We are helped by our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Sullivan and Mrs Penny.


We like to learn through topic work. This way we find out about things through lots of different subjects. For example, our literacy lessons might also include history, geography, music, drama or art. We also enjoy outdoor learning and finding out about the environment around us.


We have P.E. lessons on Monday afternoons taught by Ross Kitteridge and Aaron Cameron-Prior, our professional coaches and on Wednesday mornings. Full PE kit will be needed. No ear-rings are permitted, so it is best not to wear them at all on these days.


We read in a group with the teacher every week and enjoy a class book together.  Spellings are taught and tested on a Wednesday, and reinforced throughout the week through phonics, word and sentence work as well as handwriting. 


We like to develop our art skills by linking our work to the topics we are covering. Each year we have participated in the National Gallery 'Take One Picture' programme and we have successfully had our work exhibited on five occasions.
